About

THAVMA is dedicated to the serious Christian magician.

Let’s face it, Christian practitioners make up a large percentage of the magical community. But they’re practically invisible in terms of representation.

We at THAVMA would like to change that. We seek to raise awareness of Christian participation in the occult community, and to promote those authors, teachers, and groups who work for the community’s betterment. Our expertise is the practice of magic within the realm of Christian orthodoxy, and we believe every child of God is called to a powerful and vibrant spirituality.

Quality books. Quality advice. Quality information. That’s the THAVMA way!

      Hello there!
      The very essence of being a “Christian magician” is being one who’s dedicated to serving Jesus, in fact with out this service, the very notion of a Christian magician would be impossible.

      I’d like to recommend this short video that addresses some of the key issues Christians are raised to have with magic:

      For more information, we discuss these issues fully in Is Magic Wrong? which is available for free on our main page.

      If there’s any way I can help, or any questions you’d like me to answer, please let me know,

    You are my hero! I recently purchased your _Magic of Catholicism_ book and I love it! I have been looking for and/or working out a magical system that I could use without compromising my devotion to our Faith. I love magic, but I also love the Catholic Church even more. So I wasn’t about to become Wiccan or Pagan in order to do magic; and in comes your book! I have most of your publications and I love them all.
    Thank you so much for giving the possibility of working magic and enhancing the orthodoxy of the Catholic faith in the process. You have no idea how much you have helped me!
    Brightest Blessings upon you, Father!

  3. Hey there,

    I’ve dabbled with magic and two years later these spirits revealed themselves and were evil. For the past two years I’ve been trying to get rid of them in my home and they still won’t go. Any tips for banishing evil spirits?

      Hi Catherine! There’s a lot that can be done, and for me the first step being diagnosing the type of entity how it’s operating. Without knowing more, I’d recommend getting an exorcist in there to diagnose/clear out the immediate problem and get you some breathing room at the very least.

      In the meantime, what kinds of things have the entities been doing and what banishing techniques have you been using? Feel free to shoot me an email at agostino@thavmapub.com if you’d like.

      • I have been struggling to get an exorcist have spoken to x3 Priests but they cannot be bothered to take me seriously. x2 of 3 priests did only x1 house blessing and unwilling to follow-up explore options. So kinda stuck. I’ve said deliverance prayers + home cleansing prayers but it comes and goes with the bad spirits. At the end of the day it’s not up to a lay person to handle this. 😦 Thanks for your reply and reaching out. 🙂

    CORRECTION FROM LAST REPLY “shouldn’t for should on the last line sorry!!!”

    Crowley’s so-called “Gnostic Mass”: since Crowley was into animal sacrifice, discussing using children’s blood in ceremony , let a few of his mountaineer buddies die while on a mountain , and helped ruin peoples life’s through drug addiction for starters why would you even consider his views on anything else, someone that sick? It would have saved life’s if someone took him out while a young man, maybe sacrifice him since he seemed into this so much, would have been fun to do! 🙂 Maybe you should discus how anybody practicing magic shouldn’t do blood sacrifice with Animals of Humans hmmmmm?? Or they might run into people like me who would be the incarnation of Satan him self upon them and well …… wouldn’t be a good day for them if I caught doing any thing that !!!! I had these so called black magicians do bad spells on me before around my area.. I asked them to do it on purpose to show them how it just comes back on them, One man had a heart attack. They have since moved away since recovering, won’t take my calls or emails LOL Nothing bad happened to me only good! I also put challenges out to these frauds called mediums or Psychics in my area for big bucks if they could tell me things about myself that was specific, no takers. You sir should do a blog about how your group of buddies SHOULDN’T do animal sacrifice, mess with kids or harm the earth or some heads could roll!

      Greetings, John!

      Rest assured, I have no love for Crowley or the so-called “Gnostic Mass.” You needn’t look far on this blog for evidence of that fact. Rather, I was answering a question put to me about the subject. Last I checked, research is part of giving an intelligent answer.

      I’m always on the lookout for new subjects to write about, and am taking your suggestions under advisement. Thanks!

        Didn’t mean to be so aggressive about his. I myself, I’m a Catholic Mystical type into consciousness surviving death and Hindu type mediation, and things of this sort. . i would say I’m not alone with these evil POS who practice and type of sacrifice on any living thing. And lest not forget the baby murders in the abortion industry who i hear sell baby parts to groups in the black occult for ceremony and who knows what else and we know what political party backs this. All of this goes against anything Jesus taught with many other regions , and just isn’t going to be tolerated in this day in time without extreme push back. That’s why i challenged the black magicians with the power of the holy spirit with me.

        I listen and read lots by you. You are a good soul and an expert in your discipline . I never heard of anyone more knowledgeable then you on the occult, spiritualism , the catholic church, and history in general. Your delivery and intelligence is unmatched. I would love to have a person like you here in Maryland who had an independent Catholic Church. I would be your first member. You’re a good egg lol That’s why IMO you have an obligation to point out the evils of Mr. Crowley and people like him. This is not an individual anyone IMO would want to follow. By the way, i emailed Skeptico web site and asked that they might interview you on Skeptico. You would be great! I heard you on Glitch Bottle and you blew my mind. I always knew since a kid that the Catholic Mass was a special good magical ceremony. I love it! Keep up your great work!

      John, if we go by my inbox and the like/share ratio of my social media posts, I’m 99.9% certain there’s a massive backlash coming against the poison coming from the “Crowley side” of modern occultism’s family tree. I’ve encountered a lot of frustration, and a lot of people who went through that “phase” and then grew out of it. All I need to do is drop a post about Crowley or the OTO every now and then, because they’re more or less doing a good job of discrediting themselves in the eyes of anyone who isn’t a 14-year old rebelling against their parents.

      Funny thing is that when I was coming up, Crowley was a laughing stock and certainly not someone held up as an example to emulate. When I came back to the occult community after leaving active ministry, it seems his face is everywhere now. I still don’t understand what happened, but can hope that the fact his followers are more out in the open will help sunlight be the best disinfectant (sooner or later).

      Thank you for your kind words, though I’m afraid I’ve never heard of Skeptico. Will have a look at them and see if they send an email about interviewing.

      FWIW I’m currently training a candidate for the priesthood in Maryland, may be awhile before he’s ready though. Will keep you posted.

        OH GREAT WITH MARYLAND!!!!! I live very close to Annapolis on the Severn River. LOL talk about haunted locations; with all the history here its loaded!!!! I would love to talk with him! You should take a trip out and stay in downtown Annapolis great spot! Best food and beer and the world. The have a very old Catholic Church there and college St Johns and St Marys; you wouldn’t know it by how people vote here but Maryland was more or less the first Catholic State in the union. I love much of the faith but the pope needs to go! A commie IMO. My email listed in not my main one. I can give it out to you if needed, don’t worry I;m not as nutty as my posts lol

    Here is the web site, some nice stuff on it, way below. The guy who runs it is a good person but a bit of an anti-christian to an extent, but he’s more or less equates that with fundamentalism Christianity which is a bit nutty in some aspects. Nice stuff on NDE research and consciousness which is what i believe Christ taped into just like a Hindu Yogi to an extent. By the way, been reading a lot on the gospel of Thomas and his church in India and how Christ might have visited it, neat stuff. I love how they combined Yogi Meditation and ancient Christianity which was pure magic IMO.

    Oh Crowley ,yea the OTO is full of the faint residue types and off spring from the 60’s I believe , lost souls!! Golden Dawn a little better;anyway, you are the man IMO with regards to what your into and your knowledge. I still listen to you podcasts, mind blowing. My aunts and family from Pittsburgh were very mystical Catholics like you. They lived to be over 100 oldest steelers fans at one time in the USA. Anyway, one time my grandad had some issue and if kept coughing he would have died for some reason. My aunts went to his hospital room and did some mystical type Catholic chant or prayers and it stopped the coughing. The doctors couldn’t explain it. I had the same type thing happen to me with Hepatitis C ten plus years ago. I had a blessed gold crucifix my wife gave me ; i still have it on. My Hep C went away with min treatment. The doctors couldn’t explain it. I had a few supernatural experiences myself, psychic dreams that came true experiences with ghosts i would call it, same with my wife. I still do with perfume smells. My uncle Walt too; direct blood to Jim Thorpe was a true Psychic back in the day as my dad said. He never made a dime off of it. His eyes actually sparkled when I looked at him as a kid. I loved him so much, still do. Again , sorry i came across ruff and ready but blood sacrifice stuff and late term abortion is just something i feel so strong about and its plain sick and evil. Got to say love Harry Potter too lol !

    You’re a true GEM , great human!!! inspirational to me. Oh Oh , I have an alter set up in my room. A rock cross from stone out of Israel, two crystal angles beside it which came from a wiccan shop in Lewes DE, Mandy’s Mystical Store love her! A Mother Mary statue besides that at one end from Ireland, and on the other a small statue of Christ with a Lion and a lamb, laying down together, wow! I’m Irish Catholic , been there a bunch of times very magical place Ireland is. Forgive my fat fingers , i can’t type worth a crap. Keep in touch! Try the Skptico site , check it out ;you can email Alex from it . He’s out of south CA. My sister lives in south Ohio by the way, born again types;you should hear the arguments I have with her WOW!
